Who's the ultimate '80s airhead?
If you look back on Keanu's '80s career, what do you see? A period piece that he was probably not ready for (1988's Dangerous Liaisons), one underrated sports flick (1986's Youngblood) and one of the creepiest movies of the decade (1986's Babes in Toyland).
But don't forget Keanu nearly perfected the airhead role in the '80s in twin 1989 flicks -- Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure and Parenthood. But is Keanu Reeves the ultimate '80s airhead?
We want your suggestions. (Alas, you can't actually use the movie Airheads -- it was in 1994.) Here are five that ought to make the list.
JULIE HAGERTY: Come on ... a little love for Julie! Airplane, Lost in America, Bad Medicine. Classic airhead roles. "There's no reason to become alarmed, and we hope you'll enjoy the rest of your flight. By the way, is there anyone on board who knows how to fly a plane?"
CHRISTOPHER GUEST: The guy is nothing short of genius, so his flighty takes on Spinal Tap's Nigel Tufnel ("This is my exact inner structure, done in a tee shirt. Exactly medically accurate."), Heartbeeps and The Princess Bride are even more brilliant.
CRISPIN GLOVER: Hello? McFly? Even if you throw Back to the Future out of the equation, you have Crispin in Teachers, Racing with the Moon and My Tutor. "Last night, Darth Vader came down from planet Vulcan and told me that if I didn't take Lorraine out that he'd melt my brain."
Which famous '80s movie or TV airheads are we forgetting to honor?
